“…rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him…” Psalms 37:7 (NKJV)

In your walk with God as a Christian, there are certain things you must consider and pay attention to, in order to walk the path that God wants for you. One of those things is patience. Beloved, how patient are you in your walk with God? What kind of relationship do you have with God? Is it one of self-ambition and personal gain or one of love for God and Kingdom righteousness? These are very important questions you must consider because they help you to examine your relationship with God. There are lots of people today who are not patient in their walk with God. You find them quick to quit coming to church, either because they were offended by somebody, or they feel that God’s Word is not working. You find them always complaining about the things they don’t have and the things they have not been able to achieve. You find them blaming God for their miseries and saying things like “God has refused to help me” and all. But the big question is, are you following God for personal gains and gratification, or you are following God because you love Him and appreciate all that He is to you? If the reason you are following God is because of your love for Him, you will always find yourself patient in whatever you do with Him and in His vineyard. 

However, when your purpose of following God has its root in love for Him, there is nothing anybody will do to you in church that will make you leave or abandon the faith. There is nothing you will ever face that will make you change your confession or beliefs. Sometimes I feel sorry for people who make a decision to stay away from God because of what they think they are going through or have been through. It is the biggest mistake a man will ever make because staying away from God is like staying away from the source of your life and the results are never good.

So, I admonish you today to be patient in your walk with God and don’t base your relationship with God on material gains. Do not allow the things which you have or do not have to define your relationship with God but rather let God’s love which has been shed abroad in your heart (Romans 5:5), and be your propelling force in all that you do with God and your life with be crowned with God’s blessings in all areas. Hallelujah!


No matter what you face or go through, never base your relationship with God on material things!


Lord, I am grateful for this wonderful counsel. I choose this day to be patient in my dealings with you. I choose to be propelled by love and not selfish gains. I decree that as I do this, I am walking in the fulfillment of all your promises towards me in the name of Jesus. Amen!
